Nymphaea \Nym*phae"a\, prop. n. [L., the water lily, Gr. ?.]
A genus of aquatic plants having showy flowers (white, blue,
pink, or yellow, often fragrant), including the white water
lily and the Egyptia lotus.
Note: Recent critics have endeavored to show that this genus
should be called Castalia, and the name Nymphaea
transferred to what is now known as Nuphar.
